Sleep is a biological and behavioral phenomenon that has been studied from many different perspectives. Today it is clear that sleep quantity and quality is related to the development of chronic diseases and even mental disorders. However, many people ignore their sleep habits and fail to take active steps to adopt sleep hygiene practices preferring instead to relay on non-prescribed or prescribed pharmacological products. As a result of the potential consequences of sleep deprivation, health care professionals should be vigilant of how managing underlying medical conditions may help to optimize sleep continuity and consider prescribing interventions that minimize sleep disruption.
